Is it just because of bad timing, with all these different games comming out. Or is it the fact that people didnt hear much about it?

Its a very good game and it needs to be recognised, but the real question is, why isnt it already?

I think the reasons are :

1) Funcom ( iknow a lot of people don't trust them and for good reasons)

2) GW2 is stealling the show already for some time, many people were waiting untill GW 2 came out to play some other games. (if GW 2 didn't deliver)

I say, if you shoot your own foot (actually both of them) you might not run that fast anymore.

Good post. Expecting big sales after AoC was one of their biggest failures as of yet.

This game will never be big, seems it will not be profitable soon either, or firing 50% of FC workforce would've been redundant.

Expecting long term player retention on an "MMO" that relies on cutscenes and voice acting as its only saving grace was the big mistake.

I agree, most of the negative you hear are just people that don't know anything about the game.  They might have made it through a zone.  TSW is the best that has come out over the last 5 yrs.  Don't group in the game and you will die multiple times, which you will do anyways.  GW2 has nothing over TSW.  If Funcom actually had used a lot of advertising instead f word of mouth, I believe the game would have really taken off.  It has done extremely well with the little bit of word of mouth. 

 

yep ,agreed m8..i am soloing around blue mountain,just arrived there and dead twice in 1 min lol..i love this game and I AM getting a lifetime for this one.

"Relying on cutscenes and voice as the only saving grace"

Yes that would be true for the game that applies to - swtor.

But tsw has.
The best quests in any current game.
The best dungeons. It lacks quantity but it makes up for it with quality.
The best character progression system in a themepark mmo, TESO should copy tsws skill wheel instead of having classes.
Better than average combat, much more fun than the typical wow style combat of most mmos in that you have to actually play it, you can't play one handed while watching tv.

It's an original and different game, its as much a different sort of themepark and un wow cloney as gw2. Well except for one area, the pvp, which is unfortunately very wow, highly gear dependent and very lacking in strategy.

Basicly like pve - play tsw (with rift as second choice)
Like pvp - play eve (with perpetuum as second choice)
Like both and sick of skinner box loot grinders - play gw2.

Yeah listen to this guy Shaky, only he knows what is fun for you. So stop playing TSW even if you enjoy the PVE and think it is the best and go play VG because this guy told you so.

As someone who likes TSW very much I wish it had as many content and big land masses as VG. You could actually explore in VG, no MMO has offered that kind of luxury since then imo.

I have to agree, I't much better than I expected, it's actually one of the best games out there right now. The question is was it just under advertised so I egnored it until the free trial weekend?

I'm going to guess then, that if you're having more fun with this than any other MMO, that you don't really like MMOs.

Because this game is an atrocious MMO. But its a decent wannabe singleplayer game.

 

It doesn't get recognition because having a game that is completely worthless except for your solo instances, doesn't make a good MMO.

This level of hyperbole is actually counter productive for your aims.  The game is nowhere near atrocious when put into the context of other MMOs released in the last 5 years.

Saying so is just silly.  This is coming from someone who did not sub after the free time and is currently playing alot of GW2. 

Even if you had any other good points the completely over the top statements makes me ignore them.  The game has problems but saying it completely worthless is so incredibly way off since they actually did some things very well that you basically destroy your ability to communicate anything to anyone who could be persuaded.

I'm glad you like it, a lot of people do (myself included). Funcom's problem is getting people to buy the game, their subscription retention numbers were higher than expected for the first month.

 

Unfortunately it has a few problems that need to be ironed out.. but even with a near flawless launch some people won't give Funcom any slack or play their games.  Some players are so jaded by games release 5-10 years ago that they won't even give TSW a chance.. which is their choice, I just find it odd that people don't do that with other MMO companies (Funcom has released more MMOs than most other MMO companies with TSW, just a little fact :)).

 

Asking for reasons on this forum aren't going to get you accurate answers.  I've stopped responding to the trolls because they come by specifically to bash the game and bad mouth it.  A majority of whom never played it or played it during beta long before it's current state.  I guess a few TSW fans decided it was a good idea to post in the GW2 forums and that brought a lot of GW2 fans here to slaughter the game (easy to see when you note the posting history of the most hateful of the replies).

 

If you like the game that's what's important.  Find others who like it (likely in game or the official forums) or ask your friends to play it.  You can't get many fair opinions on MMORPG.com anymore (and I'm not just saying that about TSW because the most vocal people are those are angry with a game and they tend to migrate here).

 

I have no doubt I'll get some sort of random flame response but that just proves the point.

He is saying it, because he didn't even play the game itself or at least never beyond Kingsmouth. Or he would eat his words "big time"!

After playing several weeks I bought lifetime sub for the first and most probably last time. This game is bloody good and I'm sure I'll play this on and off for years.

I was skeptical at first, too - especially given I played Anarchy Online for four years, and Age of Conan for six months so I knew what to expect, or thought so.

But during my five day trial I had more fun in The Secret World than I have in a video game since New Vegas was a virgin.


The UI could use some work, proper anti-aliasing but so far the story line, quests - and even the cinematics are pretty damn great. I enjoy the combat as elemental/pistol due to it's complexity and the fact that I get my ass kicked if I'm not trying.

(Like accidentally pulling 10 Ak'Ab in Blackgoat forest.)

Maybe the best pve game in years, and i´ve tried a lot of them.

Yes, it´s hard and more complex than the majority, but having a great time, quests are great. My experience with funcom wasn´t that good, but with tsw they have done a great job, and it will be even better in the near future.

It is definetly an outstanding game, but i would love to see more things to do at the maximum level, than nightmare dungeons and the usual item grind.

More story, more player created content, more investigations. Just more creative things beside dungeons and raids. I know Ragnar and his fellows are capable of that!

 

Edit: And i love it, that the GW2 start has vanished nearly every troll in the TSW forums ;)

Hodor!

I've been incredibly impressed with TSW - I can't remember the last time I've had this much fun playing an MMO.

 

Sure, there are things that need to be added, such as additional zones/content, the cabals need some love... but you know, I knew there would be areas that needed improvement and addition.  I haven't made the mistake of comparing an MMO just out the gate to an MMO that's been out on the market, expanded and polished for years - but even then, I thought TSW has a lot of polish.
